French shipping group CMA CGM inaugurated its new flagship vessel 20,600 TEU-containership CMA CGM Antoine De Saint Exupery in Le Havre, France.

Two French ministers, Bruno Lemaire (Economy) and Elisabeth Borne (Transport) were present for the event.

CMA CGM Antoine De Saint Exupery is equipped with environmental technologies such as a Becker Twisted Fin, which helps reduce in CO2 emissions by as much as 4%, as well as an engine that CMA CGM says reduces fuel and oil consumption for an a 3% average reduction of CO2 emissions.
